Great location off I-40 and within walking distance to Old Town. Well kept hotel with great staff, Breakfast at attached restaurant with $6 credit was a great breakfast deal allowing menu options rather than buffet. Staff provided excellent recommendation for local dining.

Kind of hard to find, good thing we finally got our GPS to work. Albuquerque was much larger town than we expected. We made a reservation @ another Inn and when we saw it, we cancelled. The area was kind of scary and there were no restaurants near.

Easy access from I-40. Restaurant access, also very convenient. Had a dinner salad with grilled chicken and I must say it was not bad at all. Mom had the grilled chicken bun and she loved it. I just say the place you least expect always surprises. Loved the pet friendly atmosphere. Clean rooms, friendly staff.

Great place to stay in New Mexico. Right next to I-40. Housekeeping staff is fantastic. Restaurant is good but limited menu. Desk staff is professional and friendly. We have stayed at this location twice in the past four months and would gladly stay there on any future trip to that part of the Southwest USA.

We enjoyed the location of this hotel, everthing was clean and tidy. The layout of the property is a little confusing. There is a Starbucks across the street which was nice. The restaurant lounge was very nice, especially for weary travelers. I didn't want to have to get back in the car to go for dinner and a drink, so... More

This Inn is right off I 40, and a few blocks from Old Town. Instead of the usual breakfast buffet included in the room price, the breakfast is served to order by a waitress. The St. Clair Winery and Bistro is 1/2 block away, which has good food and wine at reasonable prices.

Checked in early on the 20th of August, this was no problem to the staff, Laundry on the 2nd floor was great, free breakfast was cooked to order in the morning but the waitress made it clear when we sat down that she would be expecting a tip. :-)

Didn't reserve a room and they accommodate my family with a smiling face. Was close to museum, aquarium and access to freeway. As for breakfast vouchers were per person but was enough food. We loved the view from our room and the pool. This was the second time staying there, we will be back to visit.
